    I hope it's not a Roo because I love these little guys and would have to get rid of him:-(

    I'm going to go with cockerel. Silkies are notoriously hard to sex so I could be wrong. Hopefully you'll get a second opinion. [​IMG]

    Looks like a cockerel to me as well, but it is non bearded. It's normal for them to have bigger combs and wattles.
